    Trying to loosen the engine mount bolt to replace the timing belt. Have tried 300ftlb impact wrench. No luck. Will try to heat nut tomorrow and try again. Any special tricks?

    Copied from PM:

    Yeah, post up on the forums? Actually read admins' signatures when they request that you not PM about car tech stuff?

    Not to be rude or anything, but that's what forums are for. If everyone just PM'd site staff technical questions, nobody would share information, plus the person answering the question wouldn't necessarily be right... and may not log on as often as you think (like in this case).

    My input:
    1. penetrating oil (WD-40 or something else)
    2. heat it up
    3. bigger bar
    4. drill it out

    So were you successful?
